The Lost Chord: May 30 - Orchestrated Maneuvers
Get ready for Memorial Day with two symphonies composed for the armed forces. Morton Gould wrote his Symphony No. 4 for the United States Military Academy at West Point – complete with part for “marching machine.” Samuel Barber (pictured left) composed his Symphony No. 2 while serving in the U.S. Army Air Force. The work’s second movement later became the basis for Barber’s “Night Flight.” Listen in and remember, this Sunday at 10 pm.
